Company Access Permissions

This article outlines what permissions you can customize on a company level.

With GoCo's new advanced permissions you'll not only have the ability to customize team level access, you'll also have the ability to customize company level access! 

Please note: Company Access is the highest level of access in GoCo. By enabling full access under any module, the user will have full access access for ALL team members (you will not be able to filter this by department/location).

To set up company access you'll first need to decide if you'd like the team member to have No Access (which is the default), Full Access (to all modules and team member information), or Custom. If you choose custom, you'll have the ability to adjust access types by modules:

Access Types:


  1. No Access: Under this setting, the user(s) will not have any access to the modules.
  2. Full Access: Under this setting, the user(s) will have full access to the module/add-on. This includes setting it up, disabling, adjusting policies, etc. For more detailed information, read below on the breakdown per module.
  3. Custom: Under this setting, you have to configure No Access or Full Access by module.

Here are all the modules you can customize
